Police should investigate sinister posters in Lurgan town centre – O’Dowd

Sinn Féin MLA John O’Dowd has called on police to investigate the erection of sinister posters in Lurgan town centre.

John O’Dowd said :

“The posters appear to be replicas of a historical poster of the 1912 period when thousand of guns were illegally landed in Ireland by the UVF.

“The addition of the term ‘Time to Decide’ is seen by many as a call to repeat the use of the gun in modern day Irish politics.

“The police need to investigate those responsible for the erection of these posters and their motivation.

“From social media reports the police may have attended the scene while the posters were being erected. The posters are a couple of hundred yards from the town’s police station.

“The promotion of the gun in today’s Ireland is totally unacceptable and should be condemned by all.”

So when a General Election is called, vote for hope, vote for change and vote this failed…

This was the time to call a general election, but the government didn’t have the guts to call one.

We need change like never before. We need a new government that will put workers, families, and community first.

It’s time for new people with new ideas.  It’s time for change.

‘Recognition of a Palestinian state will happen’. Welcome words from @MichealMartinTD but falls short of a firm declaration.
There may be no Palestine left to recognise unless Ireland & international community act decisively and immediately. No more delays.
